LAST LINES WP

Very clever and neat. Those of you who got it in five: I'll meet you at the next MENSA meeting. I'll be the one serving you dinner.

As Barry said, I'm not sure lookup skills are a direct sign of genius (though doing it well probably is). I probably could have done so and lowered my score a bunch had I cared to.

So if googling is looking things up on the computer what is it called when the books are right there in your den; boogling? I had four of my five close at hand, so spent the whole puzzle and the letters that I stuck in on one book (actually short story). Also had to figure out which Steinbeck and which Sinclair Lewis book the author was using.

They weren't easy to Google. I only found two outright and the other three once I had key words.

Now if you had a KINDLE

Boogling? LOL. Is that kind of like boogie-woogie with books? Anyway, I'm surrounded by books of all sorts. Missed out on the puzzle, but it looks like it would have been right up my alley.

Beth, I will help you by serving the drinks. FIVE moves??????? Very clever and I knew all my authors except one.

I would think the lowest scorers had some combination of books on hand and last lines that were easy to Google (some were and some most definitely were not). So, a bit of the luck of the draw

Definitely a fun puzzle!

One was an author I'd never heard of, and one used a substantially different translation from the one I have, which made both of those pretty tough. Figuring out which book by the particular author was a challenge, too, at least in a couple of the cases.

My first author I thought was a typo.
